    Benicia shore, no fish

    Went a couple times this weekend for a 100 casts each. The sea lion is here so it has started I guess or its probably the resident sea lion chasing local fish. Nobody catching though.

    Benicia shore, no fish

    Our waters in the Strait has a lot of current and tide and is always moving so I don't think there will be any lack of oxygen and algae problems here directly.

    yearly trap

    Ugh I fell into the trap again.
